The Best Room to Book at The Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue
GUESS THE HOTEL REVEALED!
When we put forth the picture of the pretty room admired by rich and powerful old men the other day, we knew you true hotel nerds wouldn't have a hard time guessing which hotel the room belonged to. Now today, we're here to tell you the Best Room to Book at the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue.
It came as a pleasant surprise to us but the hotel's starting room category, the Luxury King, is actually a very fine room to book. Sure, there are other bigger suites with better Park Avenue views and the upcoming Signature Suites (including one from designer Nate Berkus) are bound to blow guests away, but we really loved that a starting room category here gave you more space than most other luxury hotels in NYC.
Amenities include a generous work table, a stylish chair and ottoman, two closets, a full-length mirror on the wall in which you can clearly see yourself and your outfit (as opposed to on the back of the closet door), and modern technology like a flat-screen TV, a TV-in-mirror in the bathroom and free WiFi.
The bathrooms are tight on space but there's a shower + bath combo and we thought the sink vanity was extra good-looking. And we can't forget about the Julien Farel amenities and hairdryer. Swoon. #goodhairdayseveryday
Rates for a luxury king start at $369 next room. Aside from free WiFi, your room rate also includes a complimentary shoe shine, turn down service on request, FIAT car service, long-term luggage storage for frequent guests and discounted two-hour pressing.
But if you're gonna book a room here before August 31, 2014, you should opt for the Milk the Minibar special in where $30 a day will get you unlimited access to the minibar goodies, even the $65 bottle of champagne. The minibar won't be replenished during your stay and you do need a two-night minimum but it's still a very good deal. Pringles, snickers and bubbly? Sounds like an amazing night in, if we do say ourselves.
